WIKILEAKS: Blog Post Showing Support For Hillary And Gun Control is FAKE
So much about Hillary’s campaign is fake, even some of her supporters. A blog posted to Medium in January was made to look like it was written by a Hillary supporter who was a victim of gun violence was actually orchestrated and written by her staff. Then the piece was customized for the person assigned as the author.
The Daily Caller reported:
More Clinton Leaked Emails Detail Devotion To Executive Gun Control
More emails from Hillary Clinton campaign staffers were made public by WikiLeaks this week, granting insight into the campaign’s deceptive attacks on your rights and the extent to which Clinton is in league with the country’s most powerful anti-gun forces. Further, the emails provide more information about Clinton’s insistence on pursuing gun control by executive order.
Medium.com purports to be “a community of readers and writers offering unique perspectives on ideas large and small.” However, there’s nothing unique about the perspective of a January 12 item purportedly authored by a gun control advocate who was the victim of domestic violence. In fact, according to leaked emails, the piece was authored by Clinton campaign consultants and planted on Medium.com by campaign staff.
On January 8, Clinton campaign chair John Podesta forwarded an email titled, “Draft medium post on guns.” The author of the original email is not clear from the WikiLeaks archive. The email states, in part:
Hey everyone –
Ron Klain wrote a riff for HRC and sent it to Teddy on guns. We thought it could make a strong Medium post from someone who could really speak to this issue (not HRC and not someone on our campaign).
Here’s the draft, which I edited and can personalize depending on who we want to use as an author. A survivor of gun violence? An advocate or family member?
If we can find someone, and if folks want, we could get this posted today to Medium in someone’s name (not us). Here it is, let me know your thoughts!
Once they found a person to designate as the author, it was posted to Medium:
I’m With Hillary
This week, President Obama announced that he’ll take new steps to take on gun violence in America — and not a moment too soon. Every day 88 Americans are shot and killed and hundreds more are injured with guns. We can’t go on like this.
My stepfather shot me when I was just a child 45 years ago and in the years since I’ve become an advocate for preventing both domestic abuse and gun violence. Tragically, those two things come together and end in tragedy with alarming regularity. In fact, 52 women are shot and killed every month by intimate partners.
I’m grateful to President Obama for taking action. It’s an important step in narrowing the ‘unlicensed sale’ loophole that allows guns to be sold without background checks over the internet and at gun shows. But it doesn’t close the loophole entirely — in 32 states anyone can still go on websites like Armslist.com, find an unlicensed seller and buy a gun with no questions asked.
It’s all fake. The person who signed the post is real but the message and the very words were all chosen by the Hillary campaign and then assigned to an author when they found just the right person.
All to make it look like people are enthusiastic for Hillary and want her to enact her “common sense” gun control.
It’s so pathetic.
